“but how can they go, unless they be sent?” – Rom 10:15
Missionaries are people who have decided to spend their lives in places where they will have an opportunity to lead others to Jesus. For some persons on our team, this means living in remote villages, foreign countries and in some cases, hostile communities.
Without being directly in those situations where they find themselves, you have an opportunity to be involved in what they are doing. Missionaries, are regular people. They need housing, school fees for their children, communication and travel costs. You can be part of their work by supporting what they do. Financial support, moral support, encouragement and logistic support are only a few ways through which you can be a sender.
You can make direct donations to missionaries.
